Mr. E. G. Booth

Dear Sir,

I regret to call on you so soon. But I have been using tobacco for ten years and am suffering from the want of it very much. And desire that you will send me a little money so as to enable me to procure it. With that exception, I am doing as well as can be expected.

Hoping to hear from you soon. I close.

Yours respect,

Charles J. Morton
